Easy Peasy Local Trips to Take in the Summer

Posted by RSVP Hotel BZN on 2 July 19, 8:00 am

One of the best parts of Bozeman (and okay, there are really too many awesome things to count) is how close a BZN home base puts you to tons of day trips and other adventures. Make your stay even more epic, and check out some of the best local jaunts you can find. Here are a few easy summer trips that will give you the biggest bite out of Big Sky country.


Floating Fun

With so many Montana river miles to explore, it only makes sense to do it in style. Slip into a bikini, grab some canned cocktails to toss in the cooler, and hop on the inner tube to beat the heat. You can fish while you float, or just kick back and relax. The best part is finishing up the day with a hot spring soak (Norris and Bozeman Hot Springs are two of our faves) or a little bubbly by the campfire.


Bozeman Beach

You might not think of a mountain town as the perfect place to sink your toes in the sand. But Bozeman Beach is the ideal place for a lazy day in the sun. With the backdrop of the Bridgers and a convenient location within walking distance of MAP Brewing, the beach skirts a small lake perfect for some SUP yoga or a game of beach volleyball. You really can’t go wrong.


Mountain Biking in Big Sky

Big Sky Resort isn’t just for carving turns and taking face shots on a powder day. During the summer, explore prime mountain biking and downhill trails designed for an adrenaline rush. You can rent bikes in town, on the mountain, or bring your own. Reward your hard-working muscles with a stop at Bozeman Hot Springs on your way back to the BZN.

Fly Through the Canopy

Not into the pedaling lifestyle but want to take in the mountain views? Strap in for a ziplining trip instead. Fly through the forest for invigorating adventure, learning the safety ropes and local info from your skilled guide. Make your best model poses for the camera as you fly in for a landing.


Underground Wonders

Less than an hour from town, you’ll find a hidden underworld to explore. All through the summer, Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park offers guided tours of this maze-like underground labyrinth of cave formations and hidden history. Hop on a tour and make your way up the three-quarter of a mile trail to the cave entrance. Reward your hard work with the natural air conditioning (it’s 48 degrees in there) as you make your way through the cave. Finish up with a decadent bite of handmade fudge from the cafe on site, and stop for a cocktail at the Sacajawea Hotel on your way back to Bozeman.

Yellowstone Awaits

Yellowstone is well worth exploring, either solo or with a bespoke tour option. There’s a reason everyone goes gaga for the bright colors of Grand Prismatic and bold eruptions of Old Faithful. It feels even more luxurious to return to Bozeman for a glass of wine and a gourmet cheese platter after the day trip comes to an end.

Jump From an Airplane

Get the ultimate in adventure when you go for a skydive. DZONE Skydiving in Three Forks is your gateway to an insta post that will make your followers gasp. Take in a view of the Gallatin Valley that you can only appreciate from the open door of the airplane, and then step out into thin air with an instructor on hand to pull the chute. You may need to take a chill pill to come down from a high like that. We recommend a concoction from Bozeman Spirits to take the edge off.
